What We Do
When you are having a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest, it effects your thoughts, behavior, feelings, and sense of well-being. Almost everyone has dark thoughts when his or her mood is bad. With depression, the thoughts can be extremely negative. They can also take over and distort your view of reality. Cognitive therapy can be effective in changing negative thoughts and replacing them with healthy and realistic thoughts.
Trauma and abuse can be identified differently for each individual based on their own experience and how it left them feeling. Talking through your experience and finding healthy ways to cope without feeling blamed or shamed is part of the healing process.
In children, trauma can be something as small as a new home or as great as a loss of a pet. Children don’t have the communication skills to express their emotions and can internalize these feelings that will manifest in different parts of their lives.
Do you find yourself worrying uncontrollably, fearing the worst outcome, feeling uneasy, difficulty sleeping, feeling nervousness? You may be experiencing anxiety. If you have experienced a panic attack, you are most likely fearing that you may experience one again and have little control to manage it. We can work together to find the best tools to reduce your anxiety and impairments so that you can begin to live a healthy and happy life.
Adjustment is a process that can occur when individuals are having difficulty coping with stressful life events. These include but are not limited to the death of a loved one, relationship issues, illness or health issues, moving to a new house or place, sudden disasters, money troubles or being fired from work. The inability to adjust to the stressful event can cause one or more psychological symptoms and sometimes even physical symptoms.
Acculturation begins with individuals from one cultural group adopt new belief and behaviors of another group. These individuals mainly emigrated from different countries to their current country where they have to adapt to the new culture and its norms. Sometimes this process can be challenging as they have to learn a new language, new attitudes and values.
